Chairman Message

Land Surveyors are Geospatial Experts

Land surveyors acquire advanced and innovative skills and technologies to conduct geospatial data acquisitions and analyses to help manage smart cities and built environments. The technologies they use include unmanned aerial vehicles, mobile mapping systems using backpack or carmounted scanning technologies, etc. The final products of geospatial data gatherings can be used in various ways.

1. The Hong Kong Science and Technology Parks Corporation and DevB’s Spatial Data Office, along with their respective representatives, Sr Edmond LAM and Sr YC CHAN, co-organised a challenge to promote the use of geospatial information. The Lands Department, HKIS, and other institutes were invited as the sponsoring organisations.

2. A CPD was also held to show how to acquire the technologies to implement smart cities and built environments. Sr YIK Wai-fung was invited to give the talk. He is the Senior Survey Manager of the 3D Mapping Project Section of the Lands Department’s Survey and Mapping Office.
